to borrow money from china to pay for. >> okay. mitt romney has never made it a secret he really likes firing people. he ruffled feathers when me proposed to cut federal funding for pbs. it wasn't because moderator jim lehrer worked for pbs since 1973. romney messed with the most popular bird in america, and twitter responded. big bird peaked at 17,000 tweets per minute and the #savesesamestreet became the top trending topic. >> i don't understand. you know, everything was just fine. why does it have to be this way? give me one good reason. >> well, that's the problem, pbs doesn't receive any direct money from the government. the government funds the corporation for public broadcasting, a profit -- a private non-profit corporation that distributes the subsidy to local pbs stations. in 2012, cpb was given $444.1 million. let's see. what is that? that's .012% of the federal budget. last year, pbs received just 5% of cpb's total appropriation? so in terms of having an impact on the nation's debt, folks, we're talking about a drop in the bucket, but to many americans mitt romney is talking
like veterans arans and the poor. governor romney would replace them with a fixed grant of money to each state. that would give states more flexibility. but that funding would come with some risk. >> in the end, it often becomes an excuse just for cutting resources, and we've already cut resources so dramatically in this area. the cuts are as steep as 90% compared to 30 years ago when these programs peaked. >> reporter: when congress gets back to budget talks next year, there's a good chance job training will be cut even further. but there is bipartisan agreement that the money we do spend on job training should be used more effectively. darren gersh, nbr, washington. >> tom: tomorrow on nbr, we'll continue our look at job training with an on-the-job training program helping pay companies to train new workers. then, ahead of the first presidential debate, we'll break down what to watch and listen to on the economy from the two candidates. >> susie: when it comes to sports, the competition isn't limited to the playing field. electronic arts is learning how you can lose and win wit
franchise, but his taxes. and he knows that if romney wins, he stands to receive a windfall of money when his taxes are slashed by 20%. and that's why this fall he's not betting on coach rex ryan. his money is on paul ryan. but there's a final reason for why woody johnson doesn't need to worry about his flailing franchise. it's called redistribution, the very mechanism described as socialism by the nfl commissioner that allows his franchise to keep financially thriving even if the team doesn't win another game. that's why woody johnson can gamble on mitt romney, because johnson wins even

requested more money for egypt. what should mitt romney do or say about that? >>guest: i would say i put more strings around it and hold it up. i would nut take the money away this is not about money but our pulling out militarily. this is all happening because harry reid, president obama, and all geniuses gave us the idea that we should have a timetable on a war. so we started this in 2006 putting the pressure on president bush. a timetable? there is no such thing as a timetable for war. we should leave afghanistan when people there in that part of the world stop planning to come here and kill us. we should be this until that is offer. we node a military presence there. a lot of what is happening in afghanistan because karzai has no place to go --. >>neil: do you think al qaeda is restrengthening? >>guest: they do not see american troops in afghanistan and see as dwindling number of our troops in afghanistan and that area of the world. what they going to do? come out of hiding and do what they will do. >>neil: a problem you would mention tonight? >>guest: i know 65 percent of the member
. and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney's proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies. and over time ftraditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, then they're stuck. and this is at this time reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare, substantially. and that's why they were supportive of the approach that we took. one last point i want to make, we do have to lower the cost of health care. not just in medicare -- >> jim: we'll talk about that in a minute. >> but overall. >> jim: okay. >> that's a big topic. [overlapping dialogue] >> jim: i want to get to it. very quickly -- >> let's get back to medicare -- [overlapping dialogue] >> the president said the government can provide the service at lower cost. if that's the case it will be the best product people can purchase -- >> jim: wait a minute, governor. >> the private sector is able to provide a better product at a lower cost. >> jim: you can two

(applause) maybe you could give that to mitt romney as a souvenir of the night he crushed you in that debate. (laughter) and here's the thing, obama lost even though romney was lying his ass off the entire night. >> on medicare for current retirees, h

there was a sign there that the romney campaign was getting a sense that the obama campaign was coming up with this new counter-offensive. >> there had been talk prior to this debate about concern that big money donors maybe were kind of being hesitant in terms of giving money to the top of the ticket, giving money to governor romney. i haven't heard those concerns today. i assume there's a sense of renewed vigor and renewed enthusiasm in terms of investing? >> that's right. the romney campaign has been tweeting all day long about how much money they raised. donations were coming in every couple of seconds i think is what the romney campaign calculated because of the performance that mitt romney put in last night, and keep in mind, you were talking about the adjustments, jessica was talking about the adjustments the president's going to make. i get the sense from talking to several folks inside the romney campaign, and most notably the debate sparring partner himself, rob portman, that they are going to be sticking to this idea, this approach of a tough debate prep, intense debate prep. i
. romney refers to, they do not get. does anybody think exxon mobil needs some extra money when they are making money every time you go to the pump? why would we not want to eliminate that? why would we not eliminate tax breaks for corporate jets? my attitude is that you can probably afford it and i did a special break. when it comes to corporate taxes, gov. romney in a revenue neutral way wants to close loopholes, deductions -- he has not identified which ones they are -- but there by bring down the corporate rate. i want to do the same thing, but i have identified how to do that. part of the way is to not give tax breaks to companies shipping jobs overseas. you can take a deduction for moving a plant overseas. i think most americans would say, that does not make sense. if we take a balanced approach, what that allows us to do is to help young people, the way we have already have, make sure they can afford to go to college. it means the teacher i met in las vegas, a wonderful young lady, she describes how she has 42 kids in her class. some of them are sitting on the floor until
% of the haul from that group. romney, on the other hand, is incredibly good at raising money from people who can part with $2500 after taxes. he's raised $102 million or 46%, almost half of the haul, through the end of august, coming from people who maxed out on donations. that's reflected also in the super packs. many of the people who are fundraisers and bundlers give it to him, bundle from friends and colleagues and people they work with, other money, and then write a check for $100,000 or $200,000 or more to one of the super packs on the outside. the question is what does this mean for politics? is this increase from the outside dollar spending transforming politics going forward? the answer so far is complicated. the driving -- one of the driving forces mind this is a supreme court decision that trevor can talking about better than me is citizens united allowing outside money easier access to the air waves before the election. the barriers that were there historically in the post watergate era that frfted corporations and very wealthy people from pooling money to spend huge amounts on t
on cnbc, not just because it's the first debate for romney and obama. it's because here on "mad money," it's wednesday. what do we play on wednesdays? you've got it. time to see about your pofrls. time to play ffd ffd. time to play "am i diversified?." we've gotten inundated with tweets. we have to go to them. this is from dimas 720. m mo,, pep, point guard, cop, nyb. i'm saying it's highly unlikely. procter & gamble, uh-oh, pepsi, consumer products company. altria, conoco phillips, new york community, high-yielding financial. keep altria. between pepsi and procter, keep pepsi. we're going to put in a health care company. at this point i'm going a little aggressive. go celgene. let's go to ed in new york, please. ed? >> caller: hey. >> hey. modern portfolio. it's a modern portfolio. i have popeye's. i love the red beans and rice. aig is my favorite financial. michael kors is the terrific apparel company where they still charge $200 even at the outlets. dynavax. and facebook is not doing as badly as everybody else. internet company, financial, apparel company, biotech and we've got a restau
on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney is proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere, and when you move to a voucher system you are cutting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time if traditional medicare had decayed or fallen apart then they are stuck. this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare substantially, and that's why they were supportive of the approach that he we took. one last point. we do have to lower the cost of health care -- >> we'll talk about that in a minute. >> obama: not just in medicare but overall -- >> romney: that's a big topic. >> yeah i want to get it to but before we leave your comment -- >> romney: let's get back to medicare. >> all right. >> romney: my -- [overlapping speakers] >> romney: my experience is the private sector is typically able to provide -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> can the two of you agree that the voters have a clear choice between the two of you on medicare. >> obama: absolut
the romney/ryan campaign raised last night in milwaukee. we look at how the money will get put to work. topping the political headlines, a whole new round of fire on the sunday morning talk shows over -- the debate. tell you how nbc's "meet the press," senior obama campaign adviser robert gibbs conceded the president could have done better and also took aim at governor romney. >> it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointed in the expectations that he has for himself. but, look, i think part of that was because as i said earlier, we met a new mitt romney. speaker gingrich was pretty eloquent in running during the primaries in saying that mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> former speaker and republican candidate newt gingrich said this morning that president obama has no excuse. >> the president of the united states had 90 minutes. now, if he had done his homework and actually prepared and actually studied romney, why didn't he say it? i mean why didn't he take romney head-on? the job of the president is supposed to be competent and be
on his face. for the president accusing romney to seeking to cut money for education, romney snapped back in one of the debates few pointed moments. >> as a president you're entitied to your own airplane and own house but not your own facts. >> reporter: he offered few details about tax cuts. prompting the president to fire back. >> when governor romney said he'll replace it with something, but can't detail how it will be, in fact, replaced, and the reason he set up the system he did in massachusetts is because there isn't a better way of dealing with the pre-existing conditions. >> reporter: at one point the president admonished the moderator for limiting his time. but the president's demeanor outraged many of his supporters who were upset he didn't challenge romney more aggressively. >> i don't know what he was doing out there. he had his head down. enduring the debate. >> reporter: obama campaign sources concede romney's extensive debate preparation paid off. but david plouffe insisted the president was not off his game. >> people found him more steady tonight than romney. >> reporter:
, even with a lot of white working class voters. wasted money by the romney campaign. didn't get anything done for the middle. >> whoever wins this election is going to have a very tough four years ahead of them. 2013 is looking more and more likely. like we could fall back into a recession. a growing number of our economists are saying this. you have problems in asia, problems in europe. it all adds up to problems for us. >> looking at one of the key senate races. connecticut, a blue state where a republican is doing better. and in part because she has spent the time since she lost in 2010 doing a lot more direct contact with voters. voter events, something she really didn't do the first time around. chris: she's from the wrestling family. i think she's going to win. >> the obama campaign has focused a lot on veterans an they're shrewd to do so and it may help in the senate as well. the democrat who is a trauma doctor and a vietnam vet is running in arizona on the veterans issue and has pulled to a tie in that senate race. chris: when we come back, the question of the week for us. paul s
should never have had. we spent trillions of dollars, a waste of money and a waste of blood. it seems what romney is saying we do not have enough military. again, to my mind, it gets it exactly wrong. i think president obama has been judicious in the past year in this arab spring, which is a tremendous amount of tumult in the middle east. we do not control events cared for romney to pretend that we do it and pretend there is a military approach to all this takes us back to the dark days when we were losing so many more lives and fighting so much useless battles. that was the disaster of the george w. bush administration. seems like romney is intent on taking us straight back to that. tavis: if he were sitting in the moderator's chair to run morrowt your political ideology aside, what do think the american people need to here with the issues that matter to it and the issues that you write about in "the price of civilization", and what would you like to see the two of them go at it? what would you like to see front and center tomorrow night in this conversation? what kinds of questions
costs, plus profit, on top of that. and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney is proposing, what has to happen, the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time if traditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, they are stuck. and this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken substantially and that's why they were supportive of the approach that we took. one last point i want to make. we do have to lower the cost of health care, not just in medicare and medicaid. but overall. >> that's a big topic. can we stay on medicare? can we finish? >> very quickly, before we leave the economy. >> let's get back to medicare. >> no, no. >> the government can provide the service at lower cost and without a profit. >> all right. >> if that's the case, ten it will always be the best product people can purchase. >> wait a minute, governor. >> my experience, the private sector is typically able to provide a better product at a lower cost. >> can the
. there's nothing better. having more people working, earning more money, paying more taxes. that's the most efficient way to get this budget balanced. >> reporter: romney knead the case he would be -- made the case he would be better at creating jobs. >> does anybody think the big problem we had was there was too much oversight and regulation of wall street? >> we have to have regulation of wall street. but i wouldn't designate five banks as too big to fail. this is the biggest kiss given to new york banks. >> reporter: onto healthcare, romney returned his recurring theme, calling obamacare a job-killer. >> i don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> reporter: the president argued that romney must have liked healthcare reform at some point. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well. in massachusetts. governor romney did a good thing. >> reporter: then it was onto l
have less americans making more money. >> the body language of the candidates was i think romney won that. as far as romney's ideas, he said a lot of stuff about the changes he made to the state. but i think the whole national stage will be a different idea and sometimes that's a little farfetched right now. >> i think it's a draw. they both held their composure. they both made their points. mr. romney did look a little frustrated a few times. i liken him to a pit bull on a leash but i think he did make hi his points and i agree with him on values where as the democratic party, i don't agree with their value system at all. >> looking at the body language on these guys, they are full of crap. and they keep avoiding the real issues. >> i just had a reaction tonight, the whole time romney would be talking i kept saying how. he wanted to say how he was going to do all this stuff but he didn't tell us how. it was extremely frustrating. >> obama didn't mention anything about china. he skirted a lot of the questions. he was never direct and to the point and all the trying to attack mitt. mi
this is just starting. we are on your money, your life, we are there. count on it. yogi, meet romney. really. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves to shop online with her debit card, and so does bill, an identity thief who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accounts and stole her hard-earned money. now meet jack. after 40 years, he finally saved enough to enjoy retirement. angie, the waitress at jack's favorite diner, is also enjoying his retirement. with just a little information, she's opened up a credit line, draining the equity in jack's home. unfortunately, millions of americans just like you learn all it may take is a little misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft, and no one helps stop it better than lifelock. see, ordinary credit monitoring services tell you after your identity has been stolen. they may take 30 days to alert you-- too late for jack. lifelock has the most comprehensive identity theft protection available. if mary had lifelock's bank account alerts, she may have been notified in time to help stop it. if jack had lifelock's 24/7 pr
money. number two, the president's attack ads on television against romney not going to be taken as seriously because the folks have seen the governor definite himself effectively. number three, president obama will lose some steam in the polls, and with the adoring media. but, and this is big: mr. obama will come back hard on october 16th. you can count on that. governor romney has to, again, be on his game. two more things. from the very beginning of the campaign, i said the debates will tell the tale. >> bill: what mitt romney absolutely has to do, if he hopes to defeat president obama is win the three debates. now, we have seen the governor debate well and we have seen him get his butt kicked. >> bill: last night romney debated well. and may be on his way to the white house if that continues. finally i made this prediction last night. >> mitt romney will wish the first couple a happy anniversary. one of the first things he does. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine here with me. [ laughter ]
this crisis is because big banks on wall street were allowed to make big bets with other people's money and governor romney wants to roll back the rules we put in place to stop that behavior? that's not going to happen. that is not going to happen. [applause] one of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from

i was on the phone very late last night with romney fund-raiser said the money just poured in. look a lot of republicans felt like romney didn't have a chance to be honest going into this debate. they felt like the race was over. and obama's numbers in the battleground states were so superior to romney's why give money? this debate indicated to them, yes, romney can win. it had immediate effect on fund-raising. the spigot just opened. i think it will have effect on the poll numbers. we'll see. another one of these debates though --. bill: sunday morning, sunday morning when we first get the wave of polling after debate number one. wish we had more time, tucker. thank you. >> thank you, bill. bill: speech in denver 2008, that was 5,000 feet also. >> hilarious. bill: later. martha, what's next? martha: new developments coming up in a criminal investigation into alleged voter fraud in a critical swing state. this is exclusive fox interview with the head of the company under suspicion speaking out. bill: also flights canceled. why one of the nation's biggest airlines was ground and has

several months. he didn't talk about bain, how mitt romney made his money, didn't talk about the middle class as much in that contexted. he didn't talk about the 47%. i know when you're the president you want to be careful not to swing down, but -- >> how about just saying why you're president, why you wanted to be president, why you made the decisions you made, why you didn't want to have 40 million people sitting in the emergency room. >> i think he tried to do that, but i don't think he did it as well as he would have liked and certainly they're going to take a new approach next time. mitt romney just came to play. mark is right. >> an interesting thing, mark, back to that again, romney seemed to know it was free form. it was like a city basketball game. you know, winners get the ball. every time you make a good shot, it's not like in the nba where you have to turn the ball over. he knew if he kept shooting he could keep hitting and control the ball and the ref in this case, lehrer, tried to get the ball back and say, no, you can't have, it i want it. lehrer would say okay. how did h

and big money raised by mitt romney since the debate. his debate performance clearly caught the attention of both republicans, who were worried about the trajectory of his campaign and new voters and the campaign is reporting since the debate performance they've raked in more than $12 million, and, just today, the romney campaign undertaking a national teleconference, and phone banking exercise, made another 2 million contacts with what they hope to be new republican voters. it is a $12 million boost into the debate for mitt romney and stands in the face of staggering numbers from the barack obama campaign reporting last month they collected over $181 million. that does not rival what obama did four years ago in october, before the 2008 presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of th

the rank and file voters must be duped but they must be enraged. >> you have seen some real money management issues. remember all the stories that mitt romney was going to outspend barack obama by vast sums of money. and then we learned that the campaign didn't have quite as much money as we thought they had. and so maybe it's about competence. >> e.j., let me ask you one more question. you saw ed shultz broadcasting from denver tonight. i'm jealous he's having a post-show party in a bar with people. the romney campaign is telegraphing they need to have a clean win, that they need to absolutely turn the momentum around. they are not trying to lower expectations because they need to be reassuring supporters. is that wise to set up the debate that way? >> no. if i were there, i would say we need a three-debate strategy and we're going to begin to lay the groundwork and you'll see us move rather than lay it on the line here. in order to do that, i think they they not only need romney to have a great debate, but president obama needs to make a mistake. you can be sure he's going to be
no revenue coming from anywhere else. mitt romney says that is not the right assumption. if i cut taxes across the board and more money into piedmont acre pockets and spend more and have a lower tax rate and have more jobs and more own. >> stimulate the economy. >> and more money will come in. >> that is where the disagreement was. >> mitt romney does have some plans for cutting loopholes and some of these -- >> right. . he says we cut taxes and close loopholes and it becomes revenue neutral and president cited another studying saying you have to raise taxes on the middle class. that is why this becomes so hard to fact check one of these because they are both sort of saying things that are kind of true. >> let's switch to jobs. this doesn't have to do with the debate necessarily last night but it's critical. we have the big monthly jobs report tomorrow and we have some indicators -- >> two indicators. one is the adp a private sector report which historically has given you what is going on two days later and showed a big bump in private sector growth. the last couple of months it hasn't

. there's a report that says that romney is beginning to lose donors who were shifting their money to house and senate races. what's going on here? is this starting to take it its toll on the campaign? >> yes. in many ways what mitt romney's challenge is on wednesday night is to stop the bleeding within his own party and within his own camp. absolutely. behind the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. now you're seeing already, a lot of the independent super pacs who are blessed with their own money are going elsewhere. they are desperately trying to keep a low margin in the senate. the democrats still hold it. republicans have faint hopes of taking it. they are looking at governors races, state legislatures, they are look at any place to protect themselves from what, at this minute, looks like a fairly comfortable win for president obama. that could change. it could still change. i have to stress. but there's nothing in the romney strategy so far that indi
